Reception teacher – Mrs Alexandra Byrne

My name is Mrs Byrne and I’m the reception class teacher here at St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School.  I love teaching in Reception and remember saying that I wanted to be a teacher when I was in primary school!  I am a huge fan of reading so we find lots of time for stories as it’s amazing what new words we can learn and how easily we can get lost in a book!  I absolutely adore maths too and love Numberblocks!  We use it to help us learn about numbers.  Teaching in reception is wonderful because our author studies and PLOD planning mean that the children have a voice in their learning.


Below is some information about The Caterpillar Room and starting Reception in September.  You’ll see a few photos of our classroom and the staff that work here!
